NINDS Research Education Programs for Residents and Fellows in Neurology and Neurosurgery (R25)

Submission Date: September 10, 2008

The National Institute on Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) Research Education grant is a flexible and specialized mechanism designed to foster the development of neuroscience researchers through creative and innovative educational programs. The overall goal of the NINDS research training and research education programs is to ensure that highly trained scientists will make future advances that lead to a reduction in the burden of neurological disease. These research education grants will create an opportunity for medical residents and fellows to participate in an intensive 9 to 24 months of mentored research education experience during residency and fellowship years. This opportunity will include the necessary training for successful competition for independent mentored research awards and will facilitate the transition from fellow/resident to clinician-scientist. In addition to laboratory research skills, participants in the program will develop the critical skills necessary to design and conduct research experiments and write competitive grant applications.
